REPORT: San Antonio Spurs Consider 2 Players “Untouchable”

Victor Wembanyama

Deeming Wembanyama an untouchable is a no-brainer. In his first season in the NBA, the French native took the league by storm, winning the Rookie of the Year award unanimously. Additionally, he finished as the runner-up to the Defensive Player of the Year award behind . In his historic rookie season, Wembanyama averaged 21.4 points, 10.6 rebounds, 3.9 assists, and a league-leading 3.6 blocks per game. Many NBA personalities have given Wembanyama his flowers. In fact, some have even said he could be considered the greatest of all time when he retires. However, the 20-year-old feels he “”

“That is not how I feel,” he responded to the suggestion he had outdone even the most optimistic forecasts for success in his inaugural season. “Maybe it’s the case, but it’s not how I feel because I always, every dayꦬ, try to push harder and ಌdo more, get more achievements, more records, more wins. But the next day I always tell myself that I didn’t do enough and to push me even more. “So, it’s my first impression that I didn’t exceed any expectations, that I should have done more.”

Devin Vassell

Before a foot injury ended his season early, the fourth-year wing was enjoying a career year. The 23-year-old averaged 19.5 points, 3.8 rebounds, and 4.1 assists per game during the regular season. Additionally, he finished 12th in the voting for the Most Improved Player award. In October, Vassell signed a five-year, $135 million contract extension that will keep him under contract through the 2028-29 season. It is clear the Spurs view him as a foundational piece. Furthermore, during the season, head coach Gregg Popovich spoke about Vassell’s improvements on the court.

“He is one of the ꧃guys on the team that, all the development things we’ve been doing, you can start to see it,” Popovich said. “He’s playing better defense. He’s rebounding. He’s becoming aggressive. He’s driving the paint, he’s finding people, he’s shooting the three in transition. He’s really upped his game.”
